Baby Carrying… It’s An Adventure

December 28th, 2007 - By Stephanie Precourt

I like to think that I know baby carriers. I do write about my adventures of the babywearing sort over here from time to time. Some parents prefer the stroller or car seat to hold the baby. You’ll soon find I am a big fan of human touch and holding baby when out & about, whenever possible, and any other times for that matter. But that’s for another post. For now we’ll touch upon the awesome fashion statement that you can make when wearing your baby.

A new sling that has caught my attention is the exclusive Royalty print Peanut Shell [$65] only available at Baby Adventure Gear. I’ve normally not been a big fan of pouch slings, but have completely changed my tune. This is totally my new favorite. Not just because the sleek colors and damask print are so me, but because the Peanut Shell is comfortable, convenient, and super easy to use. No straps or buckles to mess with, and it folds up so neatly and nicely right in your purse or diaper bag. Love it. Oh, and what size is the pouch good for? Well, I’ve previously thought they were best for smaller babies, but Gray is past 2 years old now and well, there you have it! The colors of the Royalty print will go with anything and it even reverses to a warm plum color. Can’t go wrong there!

I brought my new Peanut Shell sling along when we visited the Museum of Science & Industry the other day. At one point Gray specifically asked for me to put him in the sling. So I did and within a few minutes already had someone commenting on how nice it was and wishing they had one. I also managed to nurse him discreetly while walking around the balcony at the museum- no one had any idea- and I wasn’t banned to a bench in the corner somewhere or worse- the bathroom.

But if a bench is more your thing and you like to cover up in style, you’ll be digging the new exclusive Peanut Shell Nursing Cover in the Royalty print [$29.] This nursing cover stands out above the rest because of its overall strap- you don’t have to adjust the length every time you use it. Oh, and a nice bonus is the matching designer burp cloth included, too!

Baby Adventure Gear has a special on this Royalty package. Get $10 off your order when you purchase both the sling and matching nursing cover by using code: PSROY1050 . Want just the sling? Save $5 by using code: CTH1064 .
